I did a bit of googling about the actual statistic of 70% of seats being installed incorrectly. The racv and ses had a day in metro Melbourne at some of the major shopping centres and advertised free checking of child restraints. So it's 70% of people who turned up to that event. I am suspecting it's not a true reflection correct usage rates due the demographics of surrounding areas being different compared to all of Victoria.
Some seats are easier to install correctly than others, and have features that promote safety. The new infa grandeur sounds great as it's got high rf markers, covers can be taken off when still installed I think, doesn't need to be taken out to change strap height, and has straps that are less likely to twist. Hopefully these features will start being in demand and become more common, and also the appeal of not having to shop for another seat for a long time is very appealing for many that don't consider a lot of the safety features
So do you think the 70% isn't a true reflection because it would be higher or lower because of the change in demographics?
